I am so frustrated. Just spent hours trying to upgrade to firefox 6 so I could watch videos on Vimeo. I finally succeeded in doing so and now my computer will not open firefox as it says it the architecture doesn't support it. I tried to go back to Firefox 3.6 but that didn't work either. Now I am stuck without firefox and it has lost all my book marks too. What can I do? I have an old mac lap top 10.4.11 Michele

when I start up foxfire, the page the loads and any further browsing is extended to the right further than the window shows. I can get it to work correctly if I click the Green plus button on the window to maximize the window to full screen and then click it again to restore it to the size it was. Is there any way to fix this so it just loads up correctly upon starting the application?

When I click to play Farmville, or Cityville, etc, the page text goes really small, including the facebook logo, and the window for the game is tiny. The graphics in the game are normal sized, so everything is bunched up and impossible to click on or get to. This is only happening on Firefox, everything is fine on Chrome and I.E.

I don't want to remove and reinstall Firefox as I have a lot of bookmarks and it'd be a huge hassle having to go through them to C&P etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I keep updating Firefox, but I never have the option to choose my country.

In the search bar, I cannot seem to select a different version of Google...

This seems so simple and yet I can't figure it out. Saw something on character encoding, but cannot find that in the settings.

Thanks!

Quite a few of my addons don't work with firefox 6, and I would prefer to keep them, but my pc crashed and I had to reformat. I don't want to have to go on a 3rd party site, since they could easily put a virus on my pc. I couldn't find anywhere to download it on the site. Thanks

To Whom:

ever since firefox upgraded to version 5 and now to version 6 I have an issue with the "firefox is already running, but is not responding. To Open a new window, you must first close the existing firefox process, or restart your system."

I have became a master at the ctrl-alt-delete and ending the firefox process, but I have to say that this is becoming very annoying and frustrating (specially when I need to check something quickly on my computer).

I've been an avid user for years. I just looked at Google Chrome and was disappointed with that program because it does not have the features that I have relied on for so long with Firefox.

I've been through the firefox help. I was unable to find the parent.lock file in my profile. I tried deleting my profile and recreating the profile. I have deleted the entire program twice now and reinstalled and basically I am left with the same issue.

I must say the definition of insanity is starting to show. Any additional help / correction would be beneficial. If I need to send you my computer diagnostics I can send via hijack this or any other program you need.

I want to get this resolved so that I can continue using firefox and enjoy using the program.

sincerely Daniel Schwerin, MD
